    Awesome car

    Waiting period was bit long but it was blast later! Awesome vehicle with great features compared to price.. of course am satisfied. Good control and good road grip with mileage of 19 in long n 14 in city. I have used many cars but this is in top 5 in my view. perfect for Indian roads. Smooth vehicle. Don't think it.. go for it.
